I’d agree Stereo5! They sound fantastic too. I’m listening to them now and they are just such a solid all around performer.
If anyone is interested in hearing them and are in the Colorado Springs area, feel free to reach out to me via pm and we can arrange a time for you to come over and hear some of your favorite music on them!
I would have bought them but am going with a pair of Carreras simply because the Carreras are one of my favorite stand mount speakers that I have ever heard. However, if I had ended up with the Carbons 6’s I wouldn’t have been sad about it at all. The Carbon 6’s are awesome speakers! It’s just that the Carreras are absolutely phenomenal speakers, in my opinion. I got a voicemail from Fritz today (sorry Fritz, I was sleeping!) and he informed me that my pair will be done in a week or two. I can hardly wait but having the Carbon 6’s to listen to in the interim is really helping 😁
Awesome! If you’ve never been here, I can play tour guide for a day 😁.
I’m a Colorado Springs native and know all the cool spots you should check out! Garden of The Gods, Glen Eyrie, Cheyenne Canyon, The Broadmoor 👍, but even more than that, I know how to best enjoy each of those areas.
Bishops Castle, The Sand Dunes, Hwy 67 to Hwy 285, Guenella Pass, Breckenridge, are all fun areas too.
I’m more than happy to meet up and have some fun.
i will definitely get in touch before the trip. We have been to Garden of the Gods and we went to a town west of Colorado Springs where I bought a beautiful turquoise ring. We took a drive on a nice 2 lane highway which went along a river where people were rafting and there was an Indian Casino further up. The highway was called Top Of The Rockys. It started near Pikes Peak. I would love to drive that road again. We ended up in Vail, CO.
Yeah, that was either Cripple Creek or Black Hawk.
I’d love to show you hwy 67 to hwy 285 to Guenella Pass, the I-70 to Loveland Pass to Keystone then Breck. It’s about a 4 hour drive but you make it take all day because you stop and hike and picnic.
Then you stay in Breck for the night somewhere nice for a good price because its off season. Wake up the next morning, leisurely walk around Breckenridge, then drive back to the springs.
Its an awesome adventure!
Fantastic. I will let you know a couple months in advance. It all depends if my daughters wedding isn't cancelled due to Covid19. She is against having to wear masks on her big day. I kind of agree since she has waited for the big day for 37 years. We won't go anywhere unless this virus loses its punch or a cure comes up. I really want to do it in late April and all of May. I bought a new SUV in February (first on ever), and am dying to take it on a long road trip. I don't even have 500 miles on it yet.
I thought that I’d update this thread. It’s been only 3 days since I originally posted my review but I am liking these Carbon 6’s more and more everyday. I have some Carreras coming in a few weeks but I’m starting to wonder really how much better the Carreras can be. This is going to really interesting. These Carbon 6’s are starting to blow me away In a similar way that the Carreras did. Anyhow, if anyone is here in Colorado Springs and wants to come over and hear these, you’re more than welcome. A second opinion would appreciated as well.
Anyhow, if you are considering a pair of speakers from Fritz, and you have read reviews of them and their qualities are in line with what you are seeking, pull the trigger on a pair. I highly doubt that you will regret it.
Now back to the music...
I have come close to pulling the trigger on Carerras having heard them but have not heard the Carbons. If they are that close and similarly easy to drive the lower cost would be a good sell point for me in that I already run 6 different pair of speakers around the house.
Part of the appeal for me is the easy load and option of running off a modest cost tube integrated amp perhaps someday.
@mapman , these Carbon 6’s are quite different than the Carbon 7’s I suspect. 6” carbon fiber / rohacell driver vs a 7”’paper driver...
The Carbon 6’s have grown on me quite a bit over the past week. With that in mind though, Fritz is building me a pair of Carreras right now. I’m going to go ahead and buy the Carreras!
